Our triangulated family

doesn’t have a Christmas tree

It was too hard you see

to contemplate what used to be

all the shattered memory

couldn’t stand the sharp torment

of baby crafted ornaments

But our home’s not scroogeish or bare

There’s still Christmas in the air

with candles and lights and flowers too

sometimes we cry

but we all try

strive to create a tradition that’s new

knowing Morgan, that it’s true

that your family honors you

by living fully, and so we do

    Mrs. Harrington …. I hope you can find some way to live some what of a normal life without your beloved daughter , I know you loved her with all your heart and would trade places with her in a second if you could, she was your baby and always will be. Your life is forever changed and always will be,nothing can change that. But what you must realize is that Morgan is not really gone she is in your heart and soul and always will be , know that she is in a place where we will all be someday , she is at home.
